38 weeks!

Warning: At risk of sounding like an ungrateful bitch- this post contains copious whining. You all know I wouldn't change this situation for the world but I am I don't know what to do with myself. I just want to lie down and read a book or surf the net but my house is like a bomb hit it and so I feel guilty because I should be putting things away but I'm overwhelmed because I don't know where to start. B is at school and he has been working so hard and still has waited on me hand and foot and I really should have dinner ready for him when he gets home tonight but the thought of cooking dinner is overwhelming. If tidying the kitchen and cooking dinner is overwhelming then how am I going to manage being the mother of an infant, which is something I still can't get my head around and at the same time I wish he would come out already because I am so big and I can't beathe and my cervix is nowhere to be found and there are still no beds at the hospital and my pubic bones hurt and my heel hurts and I can't sleep and my arms go numb and everybody thinks it funny because I'm a control freak who has no control and I want to tell them all to fuck off! Thursday can't come soon enough!!

Oh, I so know what you mean. There is so much to do, so little time to do it and who the heck knows where to start?

Hugs to you.

When baby gets there, somehow the things that need to get done eventually do. And in the end, very little *needs* to get done. Just rest now as much as you are able to. Hoping Thursday gets here soon for you! The countdown is on!! :)

Tell them all to fuck off! What better excuse than that they should know better than to laugh at an already hormonal, easily-agitated woman trying to gestate in peace, thank you very much, so please leave me alone if you will so I can mentally catalogue the number of different ways my house needs to be cleaned because god knows I won't be able to actually do it properly before the baby arrives.

Trust me. The baby won't care.

In an attempt to be helpful...have you tried a splint for your hands while you are sleeping? (Maybe your arms go numb from carpal tunnel.) I did that in the last few weeks of pregnancy and it was a godsend. Made all the difference in my arms/hands. (shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes. Oh. Sorry.)

Massage? Is there someone in your area that does pregnancy massage? Might she come to your house?

Hang in there, it's tough, it hurts, you have every right to be fed up, nothing anyone says is going to make you feel better so I'm not going to plamas you with worth its and not long nows.

Wishing you, B, & L well for the next few days.

I SOOOOO hear you. I am there with you. I spent most of today just crying and wandering around the house because I am so damn miserable and yet so damn scared of giving birth. I cry at LEAST once a day. Poor husband doesn't know what to do with me.
I have a cold, can't sleep, can't breathe, my feet are twice their size so I literally hobble around, and now i havea a yeast infection!!!!!!

You're doing so great ... 38 weeks! go you. Hell with a clean house. And dinner? Pfft. I think the accomplishment of 38 weeks eclipses everything. Sorry you're not feeling hot. Hoping for the week to fly by.

You and me both. Apt is a disaster zone and I can barely motivate to get up in the morning, much less do last night's dishes. Hang in there.
